Here are some of the things you must watch out for:
• Check the life of your water heater
The average working life of most water heaters is approximately 8 to 12 years. How old is your water heater? If it is approaching the end of its life, you need to carefully watch out for any signs of breakdown.
Or better yet, don’t wait until it shows signs of malfunctioning. Have it checked by a dependable plumbing company and seek its advice on whether to repair or replace it.
• A pool of water is present on the base of the tank
Water should never be found on the floor at the base of the tank. If water is present, it could mean water is leaking from the tank or there is corrosion on some part of the tank that allowed water inside to seep out. Call a plumber at once to check and correct the problem.
• Water coming out of the shower is not hot
This is a clear sign that the water heater is not working. When the problem has reached this stage that means you have been putting up with not so hot water from the water heater as you would want it to be.
• Noises are coming out from the tank when you turn the heater on and they don’t stop.
If you hear pops, cracks, whines or bangs when you turn the heater on and the noises persist, it is a sign that your water heater is breaking down. One of the causes of persistent noise is the mineral buildup inside the tank.
When there is an extensive buildup of these minerals inside the tank, it will cause the heating filament to fail. Have it checked by a legitimate plumbing technician and ask his advice on whether it can still be repaired or replaced altogether.
• Water coming out from the shower is dirty
If the water coming out of your shower is dirty, and the taste has a metallic tinge, your water heater has a problem. That means there is an accumulation of dirt inside the tank leading to the dirty color and metallic taste.
You can determine if this is the problem by checking the tank, hose and tubes if there are sediments or sludge buildup. If there are any, clean them up or have it cleaned by a professional plumber.
